It had been reported here a while ago that HGVC maintenance fees charged to a Hilton AMEX card would not earn the bonus points regular Hilton hotel-related charges would earn. An earlier post said this policy was changed a few years ago. Well I am happy to report that is definitely false!

I just checked my Surpass AMEX statement, and I received a full 6 points/$ bonus for all my Hilton charges, which included:

- one Open Season reservation
- one $49 Club Season reservation charge
- payment for 2012 maintenance fees of my Seaworld week

Add that to the normal 3 points/$ that I get on any purchase, and it equals a full 9 points/$ for all of those HGVC charges. That was a nice boost to my HHonors point balance!

Very nice! If you value your HHonors points at 0.5 cents each (and it's pretty easy to get that much value out of them), that's equal to about a 4.5% rebate.

I noticed the same thing on my bill but forgot to report it here. The bonus points started again a while back. Sure helps my Honors account total.
